"...our well-being depends not just on having a source of income, but on having a job in which we can cultivate joy and happiness...
Ideally, we are able to find a job and work in such a way that our work is of benefit to the Earth and to all living beings.”

I am a mindfulness teacher, facilitator and former business leader who has run experiential leadership programmes for corporate, government and NGO leaders in 15 countries.
In 2013 mindfulness transformed my relationship with chronic pain and radically changed my perspective on life. Now I'm passionate about helping others cultivate their inner resources and improve their wellbeing.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Mindfulness Based Approaches (BAMBA) and am trained in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR). I teach mindfulness to elite athletes, corporate teams, and individuals struggling with pain and stress. I am also an advisor to GIFT.ed, a global EdTech platform for purpose-driven leadership, economics, and governance.
I have an MBA from the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business in Beijing, and am pursuing a Masters in teaching mindfulness based courses at the Centre for Mindfulness Research and Practice at Bangor University in the UK. I am also privileged to serve as a Trustee at Breathworks, a leading charity and training organisation offering mindfulness and compassion based approaches to managing pain and illness.
I am based in Edinburgh with my three most treasured mindfulness teachers: my wife Rebecca and two daughters Na'ima and Amina.
